We recently had the awesome opportunity to ship 22 loads for one of our clients! Each shipment consisted of robust concrete rail pads. These heavyweight pads tipped the scales at 39,000 pounds for each truckload. A 48′ stepdeck trailer was used to safely transport each one, ensuring a smooth delivery.
The concrete rail pads, is not your everyday shipment. These essential components, each meticulously crafted play a crucial role in the construction and maintenance of railroads.
Each shipment measured at 44′ 0” x 5′ 0” x 1′ 4”, providing ample space and stability to accommodate the hefty load and fitting perfectly on a 48′ stepdeck.
Smooth sailing requires meticulous planning. Before the first load even hits the road, a comprehensive plan is laid out to ensure the safety of both the cargo and those responsible for its journey. This includes evaluating the weight distribution, securing the load with precision, and ensuring compliance with transportation regulations.
Loading the stepdeck is an art in itself. With 22 loads in tow, the order of placement is crucial to maintaining balance and stability throughout the journey. Each concrete rail pad is carefully positioned to maximize space and minimize any risk during transport.
From load specifications to route optimization and safety measures, every detail plays a crucial role in ensuring a successful and secure delivery. So, here’s to smooth sailing, safe travels, and the seamless transportation of essential components that keep our railways on track!
